The benefit of a water softener is to reduce the hard water that enters your home, thus reducing chalky build-up on plumbing fixtures. Having soft water will allow your appliances and fixtures to last to their full potential.
We had an iron filter system installed to remove the “rotten egg” smell from our well water which was more noticeable with the hot water than the cold. I called and they were there the same week. Installation was done quickly & very meticulously. The best part is that the unit did everything they said it would do and we have only clean, fresh smelling water every time. The unit can be paid for through a rent to own program that makes the choice to have it installed even better. We couldn’t be happier with the system or the people from Guthrie & Frey.

Guthrie and Frey were extremely responsive to my online request for information. They were able to get me on a rent to own contract that fit my needs and installer was professional and friendly. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone!
